Students will take midterm exams Friday, December 16 through Tuesday, December 20.
Students received a midterm exam study guide today that listed concepts and skills they might encounter on the exam. The exam is half multiple choice and half short essay. For the multiple choice section, students will receive texts they’ve not encountered before (a sonnet, a poem, a short story, a nonfiction piece) and answer questions based on skills and concepts we’ve practiced this semester. For the short essay section, students will be given a prompt to write based off a short story that they will take home in advance. Students can prepare for this section by annotating the story. They will receive this story in class on Monday.
Please encourage your child to approach me with any questions about the exam!
